Shauna MacKinnon first discovered the magic of growing food when visiting a school garden in New York City. She later apprenticed on an organic farm and has been a dedicated gardener ever since. She has her Organic Master Gardener certificate and completed KPU’s Richmond Farm School program. Gardening with her kids inspired her to start the Little Bean Farms blog and host community gardening workshops.
